Betty Jo Reneau, 85, of Odessa, TX., died peacefully at Hospice House on Wednesday, May 30, 2012.
Betty was born in Hominy, OK., on November 19, 1926 to Walter L. and Jessie R. Casity. She lived in Cleveland, OK., Borger, TX and finished High School at Electra, TX. where she graduated in 1944.
Betty married Eugene Charles Reneau in Electra, TX. on April 20, 1944. They moved with their three children to Odessa, TX. in 1956.
Betty was involved the first several years in raising her children. She then worked at several places in Odessa, but her joy was opening her own business in 1991, Betty's Bobbin Box. She was an accomplished seamstress and had been sewing since age 5. She had "sewing" classes every day in her front yard under a big tree. If the little girls didn't come she would go down the block and knock on their doors so they wouldn't forget their "sewing class". Betty achieved many honors being at times ranked as high as #10 in the nation with her beloved machine business. Many of her customers became close friends as Betty loved to be there and visit, tell stories, etc. She was known as the "social director" at Betty's Bobbin Box.
Betty was a life-long member of the Church of Christ where she taught Bible school and other benevolent works until her health began to fail. The last 15 of those years were spent worshiping at Sixth and Jackson where she loved so many people. She loved her Lord, her family, and all her friends, in that order.
Betty is preceded in death by her father, Walter Lloyd Casity; her mother Jessie Rosella Wilcox Casity, Sheryl Lynette Reneau, daughter.
She is survived by her daughter, Caren E. Reneau of Odessa; Walter Eugene Reneau and his wife Kristina of Snyder, TX., grandchildren Casity Hale Reneau and his wife Melissa of Houston; Audra Munoz and her husband Christopher, of Fort Worth; great-grandchildren, Andrew, Katherine, and Margaret Reneau of Houston. Betty just missed the arrival of her 4th great-grandchild scheduled to be born very soon. She is also survived by several nieces and cousins from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Tennessee.
We would especially like to thank Home Hospice and Hospice House for the wonderful care they gave our mother. Also, thank you Lonnie Hammil, Spring Creek Ministries, for your constant help and concern.
Visitation with the family, Friday, June 1, 2012 from 6 p.m.-7 p.m. at Frank W. Wilson Funeral Directors.
Services will be at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, June 2, 2012 at Sixth and Jackson Church of Christ with Penny Nichol and Lonnie Hammil officiating. Burial will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens
Services are entrusted to Frank W. Wilson Funeral Directors
